Symposium on Cultural Heritage Markup

Washington, DC

August 10, 2015

Chair: Hugh Cayless

Markup and markup technologies are used in a wide variety of cultural heritage projects by linguists, students of literature, librarians, historians, curators, and others. Markup is used behind the scenes in archives, libraries, and museums to create and store metadata and the textual content of a wide variety of materials both textual and artefactual. We dedicate this day to discussion of the challenges and possibilities of markup technologies used in the preservation of our cultural heritage and its transmission to future generations.
